We hope everyone had a great Fall Break and a meaningful Yom Kippur.

We were honored to celebrate the High Holidays with all of you.
From our Rosh Hashanah dinner at Trillium and services, to our pre-fast and break fast meals and Yom Kippur services, it was wonderful to ring in 5777 together.

Sukkot is almost here, and we hope you'll join us for Sukkah decorating before Shabbat dinner at 104 West this Friday.
